Annas Retreat Community Garden Hopes To Sprout Many Such Gardens Across The Territory
Guess who came to the Garden to be?
None other than Shelly Jacobs of ABC Landscaping!
Police Captain Sandra Colbourne and Sgt. Milton Petersen and myself had an outdoor meeting recently on St. Thomas.
Shelly and Albion “Chico” George of the UVI Cooperative Extension, each longtime friends, came out to “scope” the “promised land.” We are spitballing ideas for a directional plan to begin our Community Garden Project in the Annas Retreat location.
We were also blessed with a new team member from UVI, our Summer Intern, that really tall guy in the photo, Mr. Kendrekus Jackson who will be ordering all of our supplies and keeping inventory once everything is in order.
Thanks again folks for bringing Gardening back to the VI!
